Spectacle Swag...Monday, March 04, 2013
So I got my hair re-coloured at the weekend, my hairdresser was pretty cheeky and decided to go a shade darker without asking me! I think this tone is far too dark for me but red colour fades so quickly that it'll soon be the shade I want.
Anyways enough of that! On to glasses! I have worn glasses everyday since I was 6. My first pair were a huge pearly pink pair that took up two thirds of my face and looked like something your granny would wear. Over the years I have developed a real love for stylish frames, they are my favourite accessory! A lot of people ask me why I dont wear contacts but glasses suit me & they are part of my look. I cant imagine not having a selection of pretty frames to chose from everyday. Which is why I was so excited when Swag & Stare contacted me and asked me if id like to review some frames from them. I chose 4 frames, which they sent with plain glasses lens for me to try at home.
When I first tried on the frames Tryst in Honey was my favourite pair as the colour looked so great with my then gingery locks. The clear pair in the Gramercy frame shape I also love! I have always wanted a clear pair but never found ones I liked. The legs are dark tortoise shell which I think makes them really unusual. I really wanted to love the Blush frames but as Im sure you all agree they dont suit my round face. Someone with a more oval face would suit them a lot better. Duval in blue I thought were too big a frame for my face when I first tried them but I love how they have photographed and the colour is fantastic!
So basically I love 3 outta 4! Which are your favourite? Hopefully you guys can help me decide which ones to get with my prescription lens!
